New York City
To The Contrary is the story of Bernice “Bernie” Phillips, a savvy, successful New York City photographer who, in a moment completely against character, falls in love with Michael, one of her most inexplicably attractive subjects. With him and her best friend, the aging-and ageless-soap opera star Leslie, at her side, Bernice explores the ins, outs, ups, and ultimate downs of life, love, and sex. With the writer’s eye targeted toward imbuing the play with elements completely “contrary” to the norm, this work demonstrates that love is not always all you need.
